We actually stopped here on the way back home from our trip. I was surprised at how fast we got back to Philadelphia from here. That's besides the point.
The story behind the prison was good. I can't believe it just recently closed. Didn't know anything about the Molly McGuires and the treatment of the Irish. And, the handprint story was great. The basement was the creepiest part.
All-in-all, if you're looking for a piece of history, consider going. If you are looking to get creeped out or like a ghost story, not really worth an extra trip. It was ok. The town of Jim Thorpe is the such a cute and quant town.
